PHILADELPHIA (Philadelphia Inquirer) — Albert Momjian, 82, of Huntingdon Valley, a nationally known expert on family law, a dedicated civic volunteer, and a leader of the Armenian community in America, died Monday, July 11, of an infection at Einstein Medical Center Montgomery.
Momjian was a partner in the Philadelphia law firm of Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis, where he worked for 24 years before retiring in 2012. He led the firm’s family law department.
In 2015, he was honored by the American Jewish Committee as the recipient of the Judge Learned Hand Award, meant for “outstanding leaders in the legal profession who exemplify the high principles for which Judge Learned Hand was renowned.” He also served as Honorary Consul to the Republic of Haiti.
A funeral service was held on Saturday, July 16th at Armenian Martyrs’ Congregational Church, located at 100 N. Edmonds Avenue, Havertown.
Over the years, he attracted many high-profile clients, including the actor Will Smith, the TV and radio host Larry King, the late Phillies relief pitcher Tug McGraw, and the late Flyers owner Ed Snider.
Win or lose, he was not shy about expressing his opinions on cases.
